complete verse (1 Timothy 6:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Timothy 6:11:

  • Uma: “But you Timotius, you are God’s slave. Keep your life far from all behavior like that. Exert-effort to follow upright behavior. Submit to God. Make-strong your faith in Kristus and your love of others. Endure in difficulties, be gentle to others.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But you, Timoteo, because you were chosen by God to work for him, go-far-from all these bad things. What you ought to aim for is straight/righteous behavior and to do everything desired by God. Strengthen your trust in Isa Almasi, love your fellow-men and make-good your custom to them. Even though you are in hardship/difficulties just endure.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “But as for you, by contrast, you are the servant of God; avoid all behavior like this. Hold tight to righteous behavior, to the fulfilling of the desire of God, to trust in him, to showing love to your companions, to being patient with their transgressions, and to peaceful behavior.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But as for you (singular) who are serving God, distance-yourself (singular) from all these-things and strive to follow a righteous and godly way-of-life while at-the-same-time you (singular) also persevere in believing in the Lord Jesus. Strive also to love God and your (singular) companions, and if you (singular) are hardshipped, endure-it. See also that you (singular) are forbearing to your (singular) companions.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But you, Timoteo, you are now a servant of God. Therefore put far from you these evil things. What you are to persevere in is, living in righteousness/straightness, which is in harmony with the will of God. Be careful that your believing/obeying and your holding-dear of God and your valuing of your siblings in believing hold fast. What you are also to persevere in is, that you can endure hardship with a good mind/inner-being and you conduct-yourself-properly/be-nice.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “But you, being a worker for God, must not do these things I tell you about. You must do what is good. Let it be seen that your faith is good. Worship God with all your heart. Earnestly endeavor that you love your fellowmen. Endure whatever you pass through. And do not be proud.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
